Seedlings staying very small

Posted by SequoiaMatt99 none (My Page) on

I've grown many plants from seed before, and they usually do fairly well, but certain plants (especially celosias) have only grown a couple leaves and have stayed looking as only one week old, compared to my marigolds, for example, that were planted on the same date and are garden-ready.
Any suggestions for getting seedlings to mature?

RE: Seedlings staying very small

After reading some other posts, I think the problem is that they were very leggy. So today I planted them in the ground, burying the legs, so hopefully they toughen up and start growing vigorously.
